I have obtained all the parts needed to do the 7730 ECM swap and the DIS (distributor-less ignition system, ie: digital ignition). The 7730 ECM is far superior to the standard Fiero ECM. The 7730 ECM updates 10 times a second, while the Fiero ECM updates every 1.5 seconds. The main benefit from upgrading to […]
The builder didn’t provide anything to mount accessories around the electrical panel. Most builders (obviously not all) give a plywood surface to mount the phone demarcation point and satellite/cable lines. Since organization makes life easier, …a plywood panel needed to be installed. This was a little more involved than just adding a piece of plywood […]
I finished the installation of the Fiero sub woofers, and powered up the SST radio for a test run. I still have a wiring mess to hide, …but it sounded great!
My new audio system arrived in the mail the other day. It is called the Secret Audio SST – “Stealth Sound Technology”. In other words it is a radio system designed for vehicles without a standard radio/deck DIN size.
I need to install the interior door panels, …and finish installing the sound system, …but aside from those two elements, the interior is done.
I have completed the wiring of the alarm system. With all the black wire-loom, it looks like something from a sci-fi movie. I have also started painting the dash support pieces to match the rest of the interior trim.
Today I finished mounting the alarm system siren. I used an aluminum bracket to attach it to the chassis. I also mounted three custom LED switches (purchased last year) to the interior power window plate. I will run the fog lights to one of the switches. The other two will be there for future expansion […]
This was not as hard as I thought it would be. There was a previous alarm system installed in the Fiero, so most of the wires were pre-marked for tapping. Plus I did extensive research before hand. The alarm is working perfectly. Now I just need to make the wiring look “pretty”.
I have completed the installation of the custom junction box to the Fiero chassis. This will allow easy electrical hookup for the aftermarket accessories.
I’m just finishing off a few outstanding items: – Completion of the glove box with magnets. – Addition of a multi-switch plate inside the glove box – I will wire additional lighting (for car shows) to these switches in the future. – Completed the speaker mounts. – Levelled the dash gap piece with Bondo. It […]
